In the past I have been a bit skeptical of private tours on a vacation. I assumed it would cost too much and be "awkward" to be with an individual I didn't know in a place I wasn't really comfortable to begin with. Boy, was I ever wrong - at least when it comes to my experience last month in Germany with "The Thirsty Historian!"
A friend and I were in the area last month on an extension of a business trip and decided, with such limited time to visit, we needed to consider connecting with a tour company to show us the sights. In Germany, a tour that does that AND focuses on the beers for which the Bavaria region is so famous seemed almost to good to be true so we just had to try it.... We wound up booking tours with these guys for two different days in Munich and Bamberg, where we actually stayed overnight in the guest rooms above one of the brew houses!
It's hard to describe our experiences in a way that would be of exact value to others because with The Thirsty Historian, Levi and the gang will put together what interests YOU most and even tweak the tour along the way to best meet your needs. Levi knows the area, and the beer, SO well and yet, because he moved there from the U.S. many years back, it seemed as though he had a similar kind of perspective on the city and it's culture as we did. He could relate to us and our questions, because they were probably some of the same ones he had on his first visit. The best way to describe it all is to say that it was like "your good friend's friend meets you in Munich to show you their city and all of it's treasures."
My best advice is to get over any "reservations" you may have and reserve a spot with The Thirsty Historian if you are visiting the area. I can assure you that you won't regret the decision!
